Hands on: DemonRC NOX5 FPV 5″ Frame

So many things to do, so little time… I’ve purchased DemonRC NOX5 quadcopter frame more than a month ago, but had some time to take a look at it only today. This is not a cheap stuff. More than a $100 for a 5″ frame is few times more than I’ve used to pay. But I just had enough of cheap chinese frames. Don’t get me wrong, they usually fly alright, but both quality and user friendliness lacks a lot. With “premium” frame at least I’m sure that I’m getting a good quality carbon fiber and someone actually thought for a moment about “tiny” details a place for VTX transmitter or battery strap…

So, please welcome DemonRC NOX5:

  • this is top quality, nice cut carbon
  • 210mm motor-to-motor (diagonal)
  • decks are only 29mm apart, but arms can be installed below bottom deck to fit all that you need
  • 3mm motor arms
  • 1.5mm bottom and top decks
  • FPV camera reinforcement that can act like HD camera mount
  • FPV camera mount is hmm… the way I see it, the weakest part of this set. I’m considering designing and printing something by myself
  • nice, blue, nuts and bolts
  • deck spacers are more from nylon – I’m not sure about that to be honest
  • a lot of spare parts!
